The new square was officially opened by Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko, Prime Minister Volodymyr Groysman and Chairman of the Verkhovna Rada Andriy Parubiy who arrived at the City Day celebration in Vinnytsia on Saturday.
According to Vinnytsia Mayor Serhiy Morgunov, who presented the unique project to guests and residents of Vinnytsia, now the figures of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr will meet everyone in the city center on the background of their famous yellow submarine. Their songs will be periodically broadcast from futuristic flashlights with built-in speakers.
Two more special photo zones were also equipped in addition to the Beatles silhouettes. One of them reproduces the most popular and most recognizable photo of the band – the cover of their music album "Abbey Road" in 1969 when the four band members walking across a zebra crossing outside Abbey Road Studios. For maximum identity with this photo, the organizers of the City Day even found and placed a white Volkswagen Beetle and an English taxicab near the photo zone. In addition, a constable welcomes guests near the Liverpool Square during the day. The second additional photo zone is also the same cover in a 3D image.
